Lucero Introduces Line of Classical and Flamenco Guitars
LFB250SCE

The models feature a slimmer profile neck, cutaway design, and Fishman electronics.

Thousand Oaks, CA (October 14, 2015) -- Lucero, makers of finely crafted guitars for beginners and expert players alike, has introduced a new line of classical and flamenco guitars. As with all Lucero guitars, these new instruments feature superior tonewoods, exquisite craftsmanship, and rich, full-bodied sound.

With a slimmer profile neck, cutaway design, and premium Fishman electronics, the new "modified" flamenco guitars are designed for today's guitarist - electric and steel string players looking to add the warmth and color of nylon strings to their arsenal.

Lucero's new Flamenco series guitars feature slim, shallow neck profiles, cutaway design for easier access to upper frets, and built-in Fishman Classica III preamps with 3-band EQ, phase switch, and tuner. The Flamenco models also feature Ebonite Regal tuners and custom inlaid rosettes, gold hardware, multi-ply wood binding, 3-ply rear marquetry strip, and are factory-strung with D'Addario ProArte strings.

The Flamencos come in two flavors: the LFB250SCE combines cypress back and sides with a solid select spruce top for added snap and presence, while the LFN200SCE fuses the warmth and richness of rosewood back and sides with the volume and projection of a solid select spruce top.

In addition to the modified Flamenco models, the new Lucero model LC200S is a traditional nylon-string classical guitar featuring warm Indian rosewood back and sides with a solid red cedar top for exceptional warmth and rich tone. Genuine mahogany binding and 3-ply rear marquetry give this guitar a classic, luxurious look and feel, with a sound quality to match.

Lucero Flamenco models LFB250SCE and LFN200SCE both carry a street price of $349.99, while the classical LC200S sells for $269.99.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
